Thanks for this - I hope people find it useful. I agree, the upload process _IS_ convoluted. I hope it gets fixed/improved soon.

To answer a couple of your questions:

1. If you want to make something appears in the netlabel RSS feed, you should add 'collection = netlabels' as _well_ as 'collection = audio' and 'collection = your collection'. Easy, huh?

2. For the logo - you need to upload a JPG, and it can be called anything, but when you go to the Item Manager, you should be about to pick the dropdown pick 'Collection Header' from the dropdown menu of file types. Does this make more sense?

How do you upload the JPG, & exactly where do you upload it to?

How to add a collection header image to your details page:

I don't know if this method will work for everybody -- it might -- at least this is the way i did it.

1. Click "Edit Item" on your netlabel homepage/details page. On the edit page, click on "Item Manager." On the Item Manager page, click on "checkout--edit item's files (non XML)" near top of page. You'll be redirected to the Internet Archive Item Editing Tool.

2. In the box labeled "Manage Your Directory Tree," you'll see a file tree: right-click on the file named "1.html" (or maybe you can just click anywhere in the box -- i haven't tried that), & a context menu will pop up. Click "Add" at the bottom of that menu & a file upload window will open. Navigate to the image file you want to upload & double-click it. Back in the context menu, click "Upload." Your image file should now appear in the file tree. At the bottom of the page click "Update Item!" to save the changes you made.

3. Now you have to re-edit your details page. Scroll down to the list of files near the bottom of the page & look for your image file. On the right of it is a box with a drop down menu of file types: select "Collection Header" from this list. Then click "Submit" at the bottom of the page.

That should do it. Your collection header image should now be visible in the upper-right corner of your details page. I hope this was helpful to you. It does seem like a complicated process.

2. ok, i see what you mean ... so the solution is quite simple actually!

btw i am pleased my netlabel page is finally finished, although my logo is now pretty huge ... but i think i will leave it that way for a while
